Home Features Collaboration

File And Folder Sync Software For Windows, Linux & Mac

FileCloud’s File and Folder Sync software is a client app that can run on Windows, Mac or Linux. FileCloud’s File and Folder Sync seamlessly enables a special folder on your computer to synchronize with the FileCloud server. In addition, all the files under the special folder on your local desktop is available for access via FileCloud mobile apps, tablets and the web interface.

Seamless Collaboration

Invite your team members and share a folder. Now, the whole team can add and edit files in that folder using seamless file collaboration. All changes made are instantly synced across your team members for seamless collaboration. Team members can be spread across the world, but FileCloud Sync will make it seem like all your team members are in a room collaborating.

Manage Conflicts

If two people change the same file at the same time, FileCloud Sync app won’t try to merge the changes on the file collaboration server. Instead, it will save the original file as well as a second version which has the same name but is appended with “Conflict_,” the name of the person or computer responsible, and the date and time the conflict occurred. By creating a conflicted file, FileCloud Sync app ensures that all changes are preserved and nobody will overwrite another person’s work.

Network Folder Offline Access

FileCloud Sync’s powerful feature enables Network Folder available for offline access. The user can not only add/edit files from anywhere but also holds the control of setting the sync frequency between the copy of the Network Folder on the desktop with the folder on the LAN for cloud file collaboration.

Backup via Sync

In addition to enabling seamless online file collaboration, FileCloud File and Folder Sync software can be used to back your desktop(Windows, Mac or Linux) to FileCloud.

Backup Tool

Open the FileCloud Sync up, configure and you got a automated process that backs all your desktop data.

Sync Icon Overlays & Extensions

FileCloud Sync on Windows will show the sync status of every file and folder underneath the sync’s special folder. The visual cue provides an instant confirmation if the file/folder got synced with our file collaboration software.
